How I Use It
BrainPOP can be used in just about any way imaginable. Most BrainPOP movies come with activities and a quiz that help teachers integrate it into the classroom. The videos can be shown in a whole group setting, a small group setting, individually, or even for homework. Combine BrainPOP with their iPad App, and now Tim and Moby can be everywhere!
My Take
Honestly? Just like the title says. Who doesn't like Tim and Moby? BrainPOP is definitely a "go-to" website when looking for engaging content with students. I've seen students from Kindergarden to twelfth grade fall in love with BrainPOP. I love that BrainPOP also offers BrainPOP Jr. and BrainPOP ESL for younger students and English Language Learning students. BrainPOP also has a great library of educational games that are great for those students who are fast finishers.
